R.I.P. Jimmy Lee Lindsey (a.k.a. Jay Reatard)

From Matador Records:
“We are devastated by the death of Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr., aka Jay Reatard. Jay was as full of life as anyone we’ve ever met, and responsible for so many memorable moments as a person and artist. We’re honored to have known and worked with him, and we will miss him terribly.”

Like many other music fans, I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jay Reatard. And although I did not know him personally, I can say that he was an extremely talented musician and that his music brought hours of enjoyment to my life and undoubtedly the lives of many, many others. He will be missed.
